Top Ten Disruptive Technologies According to Gartner

David Cearley, a Gartner VP, has been speaking in Melbourne on the above topic. As reported in a post by eHomeUpgrade the top ten technologies are:

  1. Multicore and hybrid processors
  2. Virtualisation and fabric computing
  3. Social networks and social software
  4. Cloud computing and cloud/Web platforms
  5. Web mashups
  6. User Interface
  7. Ubiquitous computing
  8. Contextual computing
  9. Augmented reality
  10. Semantics

It’s good to see I have strong current research interests in technologies 2 through 6. I am not feeling particularly disruptive but I definitely have more than enough to keep my mind stimulated with new ideas.
